Yours obviously is a bad example because you have a local dealer who shouldn't be in the RV business to begin with and I don't care how long he has been in business. It's dealers like this (if your numbers are correct) that give a bad name to the business and create situations where people opt to travel out of state to purchase. I would have selected another brand from another local dealer before I would travel the distance you are proposing to save what at most should be the amount of the difference in freight. BTW if that dealer had sold that unit to you for a $29,000 profit the sales guy would have retired LOL. They are lucky if they net 5 to 6 thousand dollars on a unit of that kind. Unless someone just comes in and pays full sticker price in which case they have a huge party after work and laugh all the way to the bank.
OK, well it's clear that you know much more about my sales process and the prices than I do, so I will have to bow out.
